From it is doing and-loop straps that attach to the hammock for a special hook. Sometimes, for the manufacture of the hammock takes from three to five months! You’ll make an unforgivable mistake, If the Congress in Brazil and do not bring out the hammock, and a better couple to be, what to give to friends. Believe me, they appreciate such a gift. Unusual and nice souvenir can become a bottle Cachaca. In general, strictly speaking, Cachaca – is none other than as cane moonshine, but on the table it will look very exotic. Cachaca – an integral part of the culture of Brazil, so at the state level, it was decided to grant the status of commercial Cachaca names of hard liquor. Brazilians are clearly distinguished from Cachaca hacienda and factory production. Cachaca factory, of course, to get easier, but with Cachaca hacienda is more valuable.

It is made from crushed sugarcane, there is added to ferment corn flour, wheat bran, rice, soy or corn. Distillation of such Cachaca is carried out only in copper stills. Subsequently it is stored in wooden barrels. Industrial mode of production – more than a quick and easy, and stored in wooden casks factory Cachaca and not exposed. Good Cachaca resembles the taste of brandy or whiskey, and in color – a weak tea with lemon. Cachaca also used in a special cocktail – Caipirinha. Learn how to cook it quite easy – you need lime, sugar, ice and, in fact, Cachaca.

So if your friends or yourself, do not like hard liquor (and Cachaca on degrees approximately smooth “our” vodka), then you can surprise all original and delicious cocktail. But connoisseurs of alcoholic beverages can think of to draw attention to the rum. And, of course, Brazil – a recognized leader in the production of coffee. It was she who sets the tone for meeting the needs of the planet that drink. It began to grow coffee in the early xvi century. Brazil supplies the coffee for all tastes. Brazilian coffee relatively inexpensive. So there will, from which to choose a gift for the true coffee connoisseurs. Yes and no harm will fall at a few packages of good Brazilian coffee. I want to warn you that in almost every part of Brazil traveler may stumble upon a proposal to buy at a very cheap price with a monkey, parrot, or even some livestock. To do so in any case is impossible, as to remove the animal from a country without a whole heap of references, approvals and quarantines you are unlikely to succeed. In general, it is considered a crime in Brazil heavier armed robbery! The same is true of traditional Indian jewelry from the feathers of exotic birds, shells armadillos, wild jaguar and similar materials. Produce such things for their “internal” needs families, leading a traditional lifestyle is permitted in any amount, but sell them Indians have the right only under special state licenses, and then only to cultural institutions – museums and so on. Of course a pity that you will not be able to bring all of Brazil, to take all The local curios. But even the smallest of their part can affect anyone, but their purchase will give you great pleasure.

Red Sea Quot

So, rest in Crimea can not. ” Familiar phrase? Yes its just full of titles for all types of media, its pronounced in subway and on airplanes, in Moscow and Kiev, the competent and incompetent people in tourism. Now porassudim logically. Every year in the Crimea, rest, millions of people. It is statistically proven fact. Many of them remain satisfied with their stay. This case confirmed the fact.

But: “rest in the Crimea can not.” We have a contradiction at the very beginning of our discussion. What does this mean? This suggests that we are lying, ladies and gentlemen! Most shameless way. And if people are lying, then it is dishonest people. We consider their arguments: in the Crimea cheated at every turn, in a Cossack Lopan work most unscrupulous customs officials in the world, in the Crimea garbage service staff poorly perform his duties, the majority of taxi drivers – all the demons in flesh. What do we see? Dishonest people in their lies link to other dishonest people. Nobody claims against the Crimean mountains, Crimea Forests, history, architecture and other attractions. So it does not take away from the Crimea! The conclusion is clear: to rest in the Crimea is possible if: 1) do not listen to dishonest people, and 2) not to seek the services of dishonest people.

Except addition, there is a relatively small category of incompetent people with very moderate means, who believe that vacation in – a “cool”, and rest in Yalta – “not cool”. This is a topic for another article, but for now just to say that these people are profoundly mistaken, misguided and we do not take into account. It’s time to remove the second comma and see what happens in this case. “You can not opt abroad. Do not need special considerations to make Conclusion: This phrase was originally absurd. Pyramids of Giza – one of the wonders of the world, and diving in the Red Sea just incomparable. All this must be seen! And be sure before Paris. But it certainly is a joke, but seriously speaking, we denied both allegations set forth in the title of the article. Each resort, whether Theodosius or Sharm el , has its charms, and disputes over the advantages of one or another – it’s an empty hot air, or flood the network. Selection is yours.
